See All the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Toys That Hasbro Will Release on Force Friday

Lucasfilm
Lucasfilm

Star Wars is the kind of movie franchise that commands borderline religious devotion from its fans. So no one batted an eye when September 4, 2015 was declared “Force Friday” and it was revealed that this very specific holiday would see the release of the first wave of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys. And while some people in the Church of Lucasfilm would prefer to keep all merchandise (and any potential spoilers it brings) hidden as long as possible, Hasbro has released a catalog of each and every toy they are releasing on this Blessed Day. Naturally, this catalog has now ended up online.

Cosplayers Take Center Stage on Marvel’s Cosplay Variant Covers this Fall

marvel-cosplay-feat

You know how much we love cosplay at ComicsAlliance; we put a spotlight on it every week. Fans who create their own costumes and dress up as their favorite heroes are some of the most passionate and enthusiastic people in comics, and the level of talent and committment on display at conventions seems to get more impressive every year. If there isn't a Carol Corps cosplay meet-up or a whole dang Spider-Verse at a show, you'll probably go home disappointed.

So it's great to see Marvel paying tribute to these fans with a selection of cosplay variant covers on several of its All-New All-Different launches this fall. The Marvel Cosplay variants place fans of Spider-Gwen, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Thor (both versions) and more on the covers of the books they love. Cosplay connoisseurs will see some familiar faces among the cosplayers, including Birds of Play's Amanda Lynne Shafer, cosplay legend Yaya Han, and Marvel's own in-house cosplay blogger Judy Stephens as Captain Marvel.

SHIELD Mockingbird Spinoff Most Wanted

A few months back, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans were surprised to learn Marvel and ABC intended to develop a spinoff around Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter, ostensibly two of the strongest additions to the main series. That project was quickly shelved, but will apparently fly again with a pilot order for Marvel’s Most Wanted on ABC.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Will Feature a Major Battle Between Spider-Man and [SPOILER]!

Marvel/Sony
Marvel/Sony

Captain America: Civil War has a lot on its plate before you get to the part where it has to adequately introduce Tom Holland’s new Spider-Man and it make it matter that he’s punching some of our favorite superheroes in the face. Sure, Spidey is getting his own solo movie in 2017, but you know what they say about first impressions. While we ponder how the movie will bring Peter Parker into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we can tear apart and reassemble a single scrap of news to keep ourselves occupied … and we now know just a little bit about one of Spider-Man’s action scenes.

Pretend They’re People: The Fifty-Year-Old Answer to Marvel’s Diversity Problem

stan-feat

It remains a bleak time for the female comic audience, and for other minority audiences. The recent debacle with Hercules is merely the latest of Marvel’s many ghastly faux pas; for every two steps forward, it seems to take two steps back: it publishes more female titles only to end the majority of them with Secret Wars, and it tantalizes us with Hercules only to promote the status quo inside of continuity.

It is easy to lose faith in the publisher’s ability to reform from within, but Marvel has had the key to equal, positive representation for over fifty years now.

Fantastic Five: Best Kid Sidekicks

sidekick five

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This week we're taking a look at the kid sidekick, one of the most iconic tropes in superhero comics. Even in the most mainstream culture, superheroes are known for colorful costumes, fancy cars, underwear on the outside, and child endangerment. That's the one we're looking at this week: that seemingly endless horde of plucky orphans willing to jump out of a rocket car in short pants to punch a Nazi in the bread basket. Kid sidekicks, we salute you.

The fluid design of Netflix’s website has occasionally given way to early gaffes among the original series, including an early House of Cards Season 3 leak, and Daredevil’s red costume, so might Jessica Jones follow suit?

Early ‘Fantastic Four’ Script Includes Galactus, Mole Man and…The FantastiCar?

20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox

We have spent our fair share of time sifting through the ashes of the new Fantastic Four movie, desperately trying to figure out exactly what happened here. Call it a morbid fascination. Call it professional curiosity. All we know is that the finished movie is not what anyone involved set out to make. Now we have another item of interest – a glimpse at an early screenplay for the film and it couldn’t be more different than the final film.
